Parents charges with repeatedly raping daughter, who became pregnant twice

Charges are filed in the Haifa District Court against a couple from northern Israel accused of repeatedly raping their daughter over a period of 13 years and impregnating her twice.

Both the mother and the father, now in their 60s, are accused of raping and sexually abusing their daughter from the time she was 17.

According to the charges she became pregnant twice, on one occasion having an abortion and giving birth the second time.

The child, which suffered from rare genetic disorders, died when it was 9 months old.

Police were called when doctors treating the child performed a DNA test and discovered that the father was also the grandfather.

The charges say the mother continued to assault her daughter even after the death of the baby.

A lawyer involved in prosecuting the case tells Army Radio it is the worst case she has ever handled in her 30-year career.
